The Education Committee has a lot happening these days! We are developing new partnerships, adding resources, and hiring dedicated staff. It is exciting to see the new things happening and our program growing.
The Foundation was excited to participate in the Kitsap Water Festival again this year. This wonderful event brings 3rd and 4th graders from throughout the county to the Kitsap County Fairgrounds for a day of learning about water and how important it is.
At the Foundation, we believe education should connect the learner. It should be interesting. It should engage the senses. When a student goes home after a field trip at our Rhododendron Preserve, we want them to be brimming with excitement about what they experienced and what they learned.
On Feb. 11th, 2023, I was privileged to take a wonderful group of people on a tour of our Rhododendron Preserve. The group was made up of people training to become Stream Stewards. Stream Stewards are residents of Kitsap County that are turning environmental knowledge into action.
